(Monotype - MONO051) CD $14.00

The Russian duo also known as Astma worked with Phillips in June 2009; the recordings combine the energy unleashed by Borisov and Nosova together with the more continuous sound world of Phillips and occasional rapid editing from him. Densely orchestrated electronics with a hypnotic, psychedelic feeling that embraces elements of weird free-form spoken word, minimalism, free jazz, noise, heavy acid, electroacoustic, dub and a variety of acoustic torture.



(Tochnit Aleph - TA029) CDR $20.00 (Out-of-stock)

61 tracks by this Schimpfluch Gruppe / Runzelstirn & Gurgelstock collaborator, most of which are from a 1997 Schimpfluch cassette-only release. In the gain-attendant tradition of consciousness-captains R&G and S-G, gorked-up splats leap out of nowhere and try to permanently damage internal potentiometers by abusing the far reaches of impact detection. III+ enforces awareness of annexation of all empirical data receptors with magnifying glasses (or a suitably sexy analog). As in all great works of literature from the macrobiotic punctuation school, it's all about the crossing and the dotting. In oversized sleeve.


Illusion is a Natural Condition

(Auscultare Research) CD $10.50 (Out-of-stock)

The long anticipated collection of Dave Phillips and R.H.Y. Yau collaborations culled between 2000-2005. Phillips began his musical career when he was 17, co-founding the hardcore extremists Fear of God in 1987, whose increasingly faster, shorter, and noisier approaches to grindcore Philips realized were merely a springboard for more psychologically challenging and physically demanding artforms. Soon after Fear of God’s demise in 1989, he joined the actionist Schimpfluch-Gruppe which has followed the traditions of abjection and transgression as dictated by the Viennese Aktionists. Phillips has further developed these transgressions along with sociopolitical actionism in his solo efforts. Yau is a curator and sound artist who has been active in the sonic arts since 1993; his works are inspired by sound poetry, actionism, and the processes of musique concrète. Bored by academic cliques, Yau creates what he calls “action-concrète” -- organic synapses of voice, body, and raw materiality combined with raw electronics into sound experiences of both ultra-violence and absolute absurdity at the most base level. With ten lithographic reproductions of original drawings by Leif Elggren.



(Ini Itu - INIITU1002) LP $16.00 (Out-of-stock)

Using source material recorded in Thailand and Vietnam between 1994 and 2007, Mutations rests between Phillips's constructed works and his pure field recordings. Here he juxtaposes, layers, condenses, stretches, and distorts sounds into balanced progressions, punctuations and dense climaxes which generate an overwhelming and sometimes uneasy environment. Hallucinatory, unsettling, brooding, ominous, always restrained, controlled, progressing toward the horror. Hesse-Honegger is a scientific illustrator and researcher who has studied the effects of radioactivity on insect morphology. Edition of 250, with two high-quality printed inserts. TEDIUM HOUSE BEST OF 2011

They Live
